Total Bellas star Nikki Bella is really enjoying being single. In a recent interview, Bella dished on her dating life, revealing that she is currently “dating around,” and she also made a shocking admission about her ex-fiancé, John Cena.
Bella first addressed the rumor that she was dating her Dancing With the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev, explaining that they have gone on a few dates, and it has been fun, but there is always paparazzi everywhere they go. She also implied that things were still extremely casual.
But an insider says that Bella might be holding back a bit about what’s going on.
“They got together for dinner, and the chemistry from the dance floor came right back,” a source told Life & Style. “They hit it off. They’re taking it slow, but they’re really into each other.”
Bella also revealed that she and Cena – who she was with for six years before ending their engagement – are still friends and they do keep in touch.
“I have given him the heads up on everything because I have so much respect for him. So, I told him like, ‘Hey! I’m going on a date with this guy, just want you to know,’” said Bella “I love him, I have respect for him — he’s just such a good friend of mine.”
Bella also recently went on an epic date with The Bachelorette alum Peter Krause, and it will be featured on Season 4 of Total Bellas. It doesn’t look like a romance blossomed, but Bella had nothing but nice things to say about Krause.
The 35-year-old said that Krause was “very good looking and a great guy,” who was sweet and attentive. She says he pays attention to detail, explaining that when Krause found out she loved black licorice, he showed up for the date with black licorice, and that blew Bella away.

Bella’s twin sister Brie was also a fan of Krause, saying that he was very nice. She says that Nikki’s date with Krause went on “forever,” and Nikki added that the date lasted for five hours and she drank the whole time.
She also said that Krause asked great questions, but it was hard for them to date in front of a camera crew.
Now that Nikki Bella has closed the John Cena chapter of her life, she is a new person. And, fans will get to see the changes this season.
